Amazon to make call on Prime Video support on new Apple TV

If Amazon cares about being a top content provider, why wouldn’t they want to be on all major delivery platforms? They are on iOS so I really can’t understand this.

Amazon to make call on Prime Video support on new Apple TV

I don’t blame Amazon for being afraid.  A couple hours into my new AppleTV and… OMG… there is no other streaming box in existence ;-)  Having spent a week each with the FireTV2 and Roku4—from the UI to the remote controls, they both seem like abacuses in comparison.
The granular control provided by the touchpad on the remote gizmo has now made it impossible for me to be OK with any other.  Try zipping ahead only 30 seconds in Hulu on the Roku4—doesn’t work so well.  ‘What did he say’ works in other apps besides iTunes;  Hulu, Netflix, and Showtime all comply.
Streaming Plex and Amazon Instant Video via AirPlay from my iPhone 6S+ works flawlessly, both providing crystal clear HD picture quality—Plex appearing slightly better with 1080 media than Amazon.  Both respond to commands like ‘skip ahead/back 30 seconds’.  What-did-he-say zips both back 15 seconds, but the subtitles don’t turn on.  You can however manually turn on subtitles for both apps by swiping down on the touchpad and selecting the option.  Having not used AirPlay or AppleTV before, santa has come early this year.

Apple TV: Unboxing + comparison gallery

Thanks.  I knew it was coming, thought it might be there.  There’s another one, a 3rd party app called Simplex that was thought to be available for launch—today’s Plex Media Server update provides full compatibility for it—but it’s not present either.  What I hadn’t realized was that the iOS app offers native AirPlay functionality—which will more than suffice until the ATV app is released.
Found an iMore video posted today that scrolls through all the apps available at launch: https://youtu.be/KENklYNH2Io

Plex tells us that they’re working hard to get it into the App Store as quickly as possible, so if it’s not there already, it should be showing up very soon – at this point I believe it’s Apple holding it up if anything.

Mine is waiting for me to go pick it up :-)  Do you know if Plex is in the ATV AppStore…?

Apple sued for activating Wi-Fi Assist by default

I disabled the blasted feature. Yes, I listen to podcasts and Spotify…mostly on Wi-Fi !!!! Yet after updating to iOS 9.02 I gobbled up 11GB of cellular data within 24-36 hours

New Apple TV now available from Apple's online store

I was going to wait, but they got me both for the AppleTV and the express shipping.  I’m weak :-)

Apple sued for activating Wi-Fi Assist by default

The first use of intermingling WiFi with LTE is something I’ve found best turned off for now.  WiFi Assist and WiFi calling with AT&T are both ‘confused’ on my 6S+ when I tried them.  The device seems unsure which to use, so it keeps switching between WiFi and LTE when both signals are fine.  WiFi calling being particularly annoying when I tried it as the other caller kept saying ‘what?’ as the signal would switch between WiFi and LTE.
Once activated, I found WiFi calling worked best if I turned it on, then activated Flight-Mode, turned on WiFi and used it exclusively.

Google launches YouTube Red Subscription service

We were discussing that very thing this morning, and I generally don’t think that YouTube Red has much by itself to recommend it, but I do think that Google was clever to bundle it with Google Play Music, as it makes their streaming service more appealing, and maybe, for some, even actually worth considering over Spotify or Apple Music.

Hundreds of iOS apps caught taking user data from private APIs

You seem upset and whiney—do you even use an iPhone?

Hundreds of iOS apps caught taking user data from private APIs

Which probably isn’t exactly comforting for Apple’s Chinese customers. My point is still the same whether or not it effects people only in a specific country. (And in this case, they are saying “most” are Chinese, not all, so they’ve left wiggle room.)

If you haven’t bough app from the China AppStore, doesn’t sound like you need to worry :-)

Pulling it from the App Store does not delete it from our devices (and it shouldn’t), therefore, users deserve the courtesy of notification of which apps are affected. Has anyone found a list of the apps affected, yet? It bugs the crap out of me that we keep hearing that so-and-so discovered that an app they won’t name is harvesting info.

Battery impact of Samsung vs TSMC A9 chips overestimated? (Update: Apple response)

Figures the Samsung chip consumer more battery juice—surely it was some sort of ‘accident’ on their part ;-)
